Screen Shot 2015-06-15 at 12.32.32 PMIn this episode of the Reyna Lay Designs (RLD) Podcast I chat with Brande Wilkerson, owner and designer, of Victory Vintage Boutique. I connected with her a few years ago on YouTube over our love for vintage and since then I have seen her grow dynamically into an amazing designer, photographer, and all around beautiful person.

In the show we talk about her inspiration for her designs, how she balances being a mother, a wife, and working from home as a creative entrepreneur, trying to get into Amazon, and fighting breast cancer beast.

In this episode you’ll hear about:

  • Millinery designs and the inspiration for these pieces.
  • Balancing motherhood and marriage as a creative business person.
  • Why she calls Amazon the beast.
  • Her advice for creatives just starting out.
  • Why, at 41, she still wants to go back to school.
  • The thing people don’t talk about when you have cancer.
  • The thing we need to change in magazines featuring a designer’s custom piece.

If you love fashion, creativity, and design, you will definitely love hearing her inspiring words and the advice she gives to those barely starting out in the business.
